29 June 1990 – 4 July 1990 @ Victoria Theatre


M Butterfly is about the tempestuous love affair between a French diplomat and a Chinese Opera actress and has been a sensational hit
on Broadway and the West End. For the Festival, Theatreworks will be mounting an all new production, drawing on talents available in the region.

This promises to be a landmark production and a major step in the development of this energetic young company.
